In this episode (part 1 of our 2-part Season 1 finale) we’re focusing on our connection to our physical body AKA our fine a$$ selves.
Our physical bodies are so deeply-tied to our emotional and mental state and it’s something that cannot, and should not, be ignored.
We start off the discussion looking at issues around weight and body image and our early experiences with self-loathing (gulp.)
From there we talk about how empowering and stabilizing it can be work our physical selves with the goal of feeling strong and healthy rather than with the goal of being “skinny” or “thin” to meet external or societal expectations.
We extract the feelings of connection and relaxation as the noticeable signs of being in-tune with our bodies and we talk about when we feel, and have felt, the best in our skin.
The conversation then turns to diets, fasting and talking about our eating habits. We then get into the practices that help us remain grateful and present in our bodies.
Erin unpacks some ideas around trauma and overcoming its legacy as it’s stored in the physical body and she then offers some great and simple ways to mitigate its negative effects.
We finish off the episode with some thoughts on aging and ways to teach kids body autonomy. For all this and more tune in to the Less Alone Podcast!
